The Jumbos regained the lead 2-1 when sophomore Abby Werner (Norfolk, VA) scored from amongst a crowd right in front of the net in the 32nd minute. The Camels, eliminated from the post-season already, fought back again when junior

Seven minutes into the second half came Wagner's winner. On Wednesday, her goal in the 103rd minute gave Tufts a 1-0 victory over Worcester State College. It was the first goal of her time at Tufts. The transfer from Bates didn't wait long to score her next, and it clinched the win today over the Camels.
The Jumbos will play Bates tomorrow in the first round of the NESCAC Tournament. Game time is still to be determined. The game is a rematch of last year's NESCAC championship match.
